Wine Tour in Luján de Cuyo

The beautiful oasis of Luján de Cuyo is a very appreciated place for all mendocinos... Only half an hour drive south of the city you can find a refuge for the summer heat and also the best Malbec of the world. 

 Not so long ago, this region was covered in vineyards and olive trees only. Nowadays, people have settled in this fertile oasis, where old houses, vineyards and private neighbourhoods alternate creating a sophisticated and elegant place.

The XXI century has seen a re-flourishing of this region. New wineries appeared and some old ones have been renovated. And even if new hectares of vine are planted every year, the best Malbecs of Mendoza can only be produced with the old vineyards, a treasure that many producers will carefully preserve.   

Choose among the many wineries that can be found in this region and we will design a taylor-made journey for you. If you are open to suggestion, here follow some possible tours:

Luján de Cuyo Premium Tour - Vistalba / Catena Zapata / Belasco de Baquedano

This private tour starts in your hotel, where the driver and guide will pick you up. During the 30 minutes ride to Vistalba Winery your guide will explain the history of the region and the aspects of viticulture in Mendoza. 

Vistalba is settled at the foot of the Andes Range, offering a majestic view of the mountain and the vineyards. The modern building has an imposing architecture that respects traditional values. This winery will surprise you with their wines and olive oil. 

The visit to Catena Zapata is an absolute must, since its founder, Nicolás Catena was an expert winemaker who devoted his life to research in order to find the best Malbec plants that our terroir could produce. You will taste here three varietals of their premium line: Angélica Zapata.

If you enjoy amazing gourmet lunches paired with great wines, you will never forget the Belasco experience. Each of the five courses are specially conceived to pair their excellent wine production, going from fresh and floral for the starter and culminating with a complex Malbec to pair the Rib Eye Steak. An ice wine will surprise you at dessert time.
